Meet the Governors

You can find out more about the members of our Governing Body by clicking on the pictures below. We always welcome expressions of interest in governorship – you don’t need a background in education or any particular qualifications, just a passion to ensure our colleges are the best they can be. Applications from all members of the community are welcomed on an equal basis regardless of age, gender, ethnic background, disability, religious beliefs or sexual orientation. For more information, please contact the Clerk to the Corporation, Sarah Thompson, at
